“Lovely little restaurant!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Great service at this lovely little restaurant in Old Town. I went for lunch with friends and we ate from the lunch time set menu. The mushroom soup was divine as was the steak. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Excellent food, excellent place!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Best restaurant in swindon by far! Had a Friday night reservation, unfortunately Phil the owner told us our table wouldn't be ready for the allotted time which was a bit of a pain. On arrival Phil couldn't have been nicer and set us up with a free bottle of wine. Overall the food was top notch, service although quick was very good also. Would recommend for sure.

“Great meal, great atmosphere - just don't park in the street outside!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Lovely restaurant with great food, great atmosphere and brilliant service. Pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

I know it's not the restaurant's fault but I parked in the street outside the restaurant and ended up with a parking ticket - although this is not related to the restaurant itself, I feel it's important for potential visitors to know before they visit so they don't get a ticket too! There is a large Pay & Display car park to the back of the restaurant - I would park there instead!

Most recently visited for my partners birthday. Food and drink superb as always. The rib eye was perfectly cooked and everyone enjoyed their meals. Highly recommended!

“Delightful restaurant in Swindon Old Town”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I was taken out for dinner after a meeting in Swindon by friends who work near to this restaurant. What a delightful place. Lovely food (really inventive and appetising) and very attentive staff. I will try to engineer a second visit as soon as I can. Although other reviewers have said that booking is needed, it wasn't necessary for a Wednesday evening in June - but there might have been a World Cup football match on.
